032 - Magic - with Links!

Cyril Takayama 1. Cyril Takayama
The Amazing Randi has been singing the praises of this magician from Japan. I think I know how these trick are done, but I really don't see any evidence of it.

Magician, entertainer and scholar Ricky Jay maintains a small audio archive of his short radio presentations on the history of the arcane and the bizarre.

Levitation 3. Levitation
Think David Blaine can levitate? He just has magnetic shoes and a pair of jogging pants with a split down the front of them. King of Skeeve, Criss Angel demonstrates.

Penn Jillette's daily radio show does occasionally touch on magic, but he's usually talking about libertarianism, freedom of speech, atheism, the free market, patriotism, and monkeys. I blatantly stole my Monkey Tuesday segment from his show.

Out of Context 5. Out of Context
A fake magician created an act about how simple it can be to fool the audience.
